It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Left to right: Mac, Dee, Frank, Charlie, Dennis, the Waitress

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is returning to FX for its third season debut tonight, and that's cause for celebration. As I've said before, I think it's one of the best sitcoms on television. It's centered on Charlie, Mac, Dennis, and Dee, who run a bar in Philly, and who spend their days doing just about the worst, most ignorant, most outrageously anti-social things imaginable. Such as: getting hooked on crack to go on disability. Or: pretending to have cancer to win sympathy from a girl. I can't wait to see what horrible things the gang (along with second season addition Danny DeVito) gets up to this year.

It's hysterically offensive and hilariously wrong -- though, as you might guess, it may not be to everyone's taste. It depends on if you can laugh at abortion, or babies found in dumpsters, or racism, or incest, or lead characters dressing up like Nazis. Turns out, I can. I guarantee, it's like nothing else you will find on TV.

If you're still not sure you want to tune in, I can tell you this: in the second episode tonight, Danny DeVito drops acid. HOW CAN YOU NOT WANT TO SEE THAT???
